Elizabeth Betancourt's Profile
Hello, and thank you for you interest in the person behind Tattercoats - me!
I live in a very rural community just outside Redding, CA: Happy Valley (no joke!). I moved here from a big city along with my husband, and it's been such an amazing, refreshing breath of joy to my creativity! We live in the middle of acres and acres of 150-year-old olive trees, with vegetable beds in the back and the front of the house, and the neighbors knew us before we'd even seen them! Like I said, very rural.
That said, there is inspiration around every tree. Beautiful old lilac bushes and the first bluebird I'd ever seen in California make my studio location special. Access to antique fabrics and lace, natural and local raw materials, and the innovation of the natural world make my products special. I want to be able to pass this feeling…
